Local Preservation

I have letters my grandmother wrote and received while at Salem College before the turn of the century. Wartime telegrams to and from my father from the 1940s. A beautiful, fading pencil and ink drawing of a doorway labeled "by Velma Martin, Salem 1914", which I've been trying to track the origin of for ages. I need to look into this.
